The Reviews for Gacchaman (2013) 1080p

It's cliché. So what?Reviewed bydavidgrafVote: 5/10

Yes, it's cliché. So what? Have you seen many Japanese live action adaptations of powered superheroes in the last twenty years? Then I rest my case. Cliché is practically a genre unto itself. But there are a few surprises here, and the moments ripped directly from the series will (perhaps shamefully, but it's dark in the cinema so no-one will see you) have you clapping your hands like a kid again.

Sadly, the story was cheesy. It was too melodramatic. The plot saves were sloppy and the dialog was groan-inducing. In the hands of the Japanese equivalent of Joss Whedon (if he even exists), Gatchaman could have been something magnificent, but instead what you get is pretty much exactly what's described on the box, except with real actors and sometimes sub-par special effects. If you have complaints about this, then perhaps you should just think about the number of live action adaptations film-makers outside of Japan have been responsible for that have ruined your childhood for you. I could make a list. It would start with the Thunderbirds, and it wouldn't end there.

The Japanese superhero film that could have been great.Reviewed byQuebec_DragonVote: 6/10

I saw the international premiere at Montreal's Fantasia festival at the start of August. I only had vague memories of watching some of the anime this is based on, better known to North-American audiences as Battle of the Planets starring G-Force, a 5-person superhero team with a bird theme. I was curious as to how a live-action film would translate. Storywise, we have a mysterious invading force who mostly look like helmeted military/cops from a number of sci-fi/modern video games (think Half-Life 2) sporting almost-invincible forcefields with a few ludicrously-clad leaders. They have taken over half the world. The only ones who can effectively fight them are young people powered by a magical ancient stone (our 5 heroes but others too in the past). Soon enough, an operation with the ominous name of Last Suicide comes to be known and its true nature must be revealed.

The movie started off with an amazing outdoors battle in a big metropolis (Tokyo, I think) involving a giant mechanical wheel and the introduction of our main characters. Although obviously looking computer-generated in parts, it was very cool and exciting, bringing to mind the best American superhero blockbusters. The heroes moved with astounding agility and speed yet remained trackable and fun to watch. This impressed me. The costumes weren't faithful to the cartoon, but I thought they looked mighty fine for the modern age, especially the helmets. In that regard, the costumes of the main villains didn't fare as well looking somewhat ridiculous, especially the helmet of the main antagonist. But perhaps it was that way in the anime, so let's not be too severe. Unfortunately, that outstanding first battle was the highlight of the film.

In the middle part of the film came a lot of exposition and story background mostly showing our heroes in civilian attire. It wasn't uninteresting and I did like most of it. I was hoping for the return of costumed action though. There were some nice twists and even effective dramatic moments, but not all of them (some played out corny or too predictable). Of particular note, a confrontation between 2 of our heroes regarding the fate of a bad guy was quite intense with a surprising end. At that moment, I thought, Wow, this movie is turning out great, it's unexpectedly dark and mature. But I was wrong. One reveal involving a villain might have been predictable, but I didn't expect it to play out that way, so kudos there. Speaking of villains, disregarding the 2 totally-undeveloped costumed underlings, one of the main bad guys was appropriately sly and menacing (the one in civilian clothes), but I was disappointed with the other sporting the ridiculous blue helmet with the "fox" ears. There was something lacking in the performance that didn't help the drama. Some scenes that should have been heart-wrenching seemed a bit forced and fake. Some bad dialogue (was it the translation?) didn't help the drama, even provoking some inappropriate laughter in the audience. This jaded viewer did fear for the lives of our heroes a few times, so any movie that manages to do that deserves a few extra points in my book.

However, things kinda fell apart for the finale at the enemy's base where we were stuck with fights in underlit cramped caves and rooms. Even the main room with the floating platforms was underwhelming. Not helping was the way the action was so quickly cut. It was disappointing and was a poor contrast to the spectacular city action. The final confrontation also felt underwhelming and seemed to drag on. Something really interesting involving the corruption of one of the heroes was going on but it kinda fizzled out. I did like how at one point of that whole sequence, it did feel like a suicide mission. Overall this seemed like a worthy effort to modernize anime icons and bring them to live-action, trying to approach the American superhero movies in terms of action and sophistication, but in the end it kinda felt short. If you have any interest in the subject matter though, it's worth watching, I think, unless you're a true purist. In which case, you would probably feel offended by the liberties taken.

Rating: 5.5 out of 10 (average-good)

Wasted PotentialReviewed bydctcoolVote: 4/10

I'm pretty fond of Japanese Otaku hero shows, I've followed Super Sentai, Kamen Rider and after seeing how well the standard could be set with Gantz a few years ago I had high expectations for this.

I saw this as part of Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal and suffice to say it sure did know how to draw me into the film.

Its a really interesting plot buildup: An invading force known as the Galactor has laid siege to countries all over the world with the worst affected area being in Europe, Japan is one of the few safe havens left on the planet but is still under threat from constant attack, with Galactors personal energy shields rendering human weapons useless they instead turn their attention to powerful crystals which select their owners to become the superheroes the Gatchaman.

The film starts out really strong with a fantastic opening action sequence rivaling that of many Hollywood action films with great fight scenes some decent effects (to a degree) and it really left you with some great on your seat action for the first 15 minutes.

After that, it all falls apart.

The next hour of the film almost becomes an annoying slog with so much exposition and back story being tried to get cramped into the film, with most plot point revealed to be rather uninteresting or just flat out silly, not to mention one rather obvious plot hole towards the end of the film where it almost felt like the director said "screw it"

In fact what it actually feels like is that the movie blew its budget way on the opening scene that they had to go all melodramatic to fill in the rest of the film.

The climax of the film isn't any better either whilst we do see a return to action the fights are in to close corridors making it hard to make out whats going on and one ridiculously stupid over dramatic death scene that is almost laughable had it not been for the fact that by this stage I was pretty much bored out of my mind.

Comparable to say Pacific Rim which knew what it was, it knew it was a silly setup which compensated with awesome fight scenes. But in Gatchaman while the setup was strong what was holding it together was silly, yet they tried to make a silly plot serious and sadly it just doesn't work.

Not helped are some of the Japanese actors bad attempts at speaking English, And while I can forgive some actors who have to learn what to say on a whim some of the spoken English dialog from one character doesn't even match the subtitles for whats being said on screen.

In the end Gatchaman could have been a great film to introduce Western Audience to Japanese Super Hero films but unfortunately its incredible boring and silly 2nd act renders the whole film almost unwatchable. I would recommend finding the opening action scene on the Internet for some good entertainment while killing time but thats about it.
